It is a great old hotel - freshly decorated, green plants everywhere, clean rooms and public areas, etc, etc. Our room (#12) was spacious with a good sized bathroom and a private terrace overlooking the beach. We were on a corner so we had two sets...

The rooms are VERY clean and nicely decorated. The service is the best I have ever received. Thanks to Mario and...

My husband and I stayed at Buca di Bacco in May last year. I chose this particular hotel because of the excellent reviews and the location.
